Ray Cote, the charming fellow pictured here, has resigned as the board of education president in Mahopac, New York, just north of the city, after a hot mike caught him calling a parent fat. "This one here, chubby wubby, she gets fatter and fatter at every meeting. She really does," said Cote at a board gathering that was being streamed live online. A committed mother watching at home put the clip on YouTube, like a small-town V. Stiviano, and now the jerk is gone.
"It totally tells us that he cares nothing for the community that he says he upholds," said the concerned parent with a working knowledge of how to go viral. "Nothing. He cares nothing for us."
"My words were inappropriate and do not reflect my feelings or attitudes," said Cote in a statement. "I will strive to regain the trust and respect of the community." Cote, it turns out, belongs to a "diversity and sensitivity team" created after students posted racially insensitive comments on Twitter earlier this year. Or he used to.
Name that party!
Good. THIS is the right kind of outrage!
The SOB, like all liberals, thought that he had the right to judge.
But will this be on the 6 o’clock news?
Taken out of context, obviously.
Oh, good grief-now we all have a constitutional right not to be offended?
My reply to him: “Listen, you exit aperture of the digestive system. You look like a male member with fur. Your grin reminds me of something I saw at a zoo.”
Of course, my actual words would be somewhat different.
I am waiting for NSA to publish a few things I have to say about the jerk in the White House.
Ever notice how sensitivity specialists are INsensitive?
A close parallel is how shootings occur after those stupid (and well-subsidized) “NON-violence Summits” in da hood.
Another one is how people who extravagantly say, “It’s NOT about the money” are almost always the super greedy ones.
“What I meant to say was........”
It certainly displays an incredible lack of professionalism.
Yeah, but was WAS she fat?
It's not like he called all the women in San Antonio fat!
He should stand by his comments like that Black ESPN dude.
Wait a minute! Is she FAT? Does she appear to be getting fatter?
We can’t keep railroading people out of their positions just because they say something rude. Especially when it was a PRIVATE conversation. It won’t be long and NO ONE will be able to speak the truth.
I don’t know if this man, (women would be even more cruel), is a Democrat or Republican, and I don’t care. He is or was free to speak his mind, in a “private” (not that it really matters) conversation. One person’s joke is another person’s imagined embarrassment, so ban all jokes? It is soon coming to that. As soon as you, (general you), get fired for YOUR joke, THEN the light will go on, but it will be too late.
PC, in all of its forms, is destroying this country. It very well may be already too late.
He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.
In the next election, vote the guy out if you want to.
BTW don’t you think the fat lady KNOWS she is fat?
BTW I’m fat! Who cares?
This was at a board meeting, you say crap like that to a customer or another employee, you’d get fired so fast it would make your head spin.
A meeting is not the place to make a personal remark, even as an aside. that said, chubby wubby obviously doesn’t have a skin to go with the rest of her-it is thin...
It wasn’t her who complained, it was someone watching the meeting on TV.
I meant watching online, not on TV.
